Guns why why. Guns were invented for the simple fact to kill people why else were they made. Hunting with guns is making it to easy people used hunt with a bow which is much cheaper and look they got by. Yes the problem in America is gangs who are importing guns but a kitchen knife at home is good enough as you know your house and can defend yourself by hiding round a corner. On the streets America is safe as the police are very good with dealing with fire arms . Most crimes are getting killed at home .... Or schools but that is because people are putting to much trust in their guns . There is no chance of negotiation if both parties have guns at each others throats. Most of the argument is self defence but you wouldn't need to defend yourself as much if there weren't any legalised weaponry. Also gun dealers would go broke but the American financial system could help them back on their fewer. Also they could become a ballistics expert for the police with their set of skills.
